    the poorest students and are completely meaningless to middle-class kids. We now have a donut hole in college affordability. If you're poor, you can get the necessary grants to go to college. If you're rich, you have nothing to worry about obviously. If you're middle class you have no grants and tens of thousands of dollars in loans. Poor kids must take out loans too. If you were actually in school right now you might be able to see that the expansion of pell grants was a drop in the bucket and nothing more than a token.
